When Michael enters the Pakistani Consulate portraying a reporter, he is holding the 19 May Miami Herald (Headline: "McCain, Obama, Clinton target Florida").
The alias Michael uses, Davis Cullen, references a real person: Cullen Davis. Davis was tried and acquitted for murdering his estranged wife's lover and her daughter as well as seriously injuring his wife Priscilla in 1976 when they lived in Fort Worth, Texas.
Sam: Mike, look, you know I'm up for just about anything, but this, this is like cursing in church. I mean, technically, this is foreign soil.
Michael: No, technically, it's just trepassing. The one perk of being burned, my crimes are just crimes, not acts of war.
Sam: But does it have to be the Pakistani consulate? Couldn't it be, I don't know, Jamaica? Those guys are probably very easygoing.
Michael: A Pakistani spy in an Indian restaurant? My friend, you have gone native!
Madeline: (about Fiona) Your girlfriend's getting creamed.
Michael: She is not my girlfriend.
Madeline: Okay honey, whatever you say.
Michael: Yeah, the thing is...
Michael: Yeah, we're not - well, we're still working together but the other part, that's uh, well, we've closed the door on that.
Madeline: Why do you always do this?
Michael: I didn't do it this time, she did.
Michael: (voice-over) There are two schools of safe cracking. Some people like to beat the lock, some people like to break the lock. But it doesn't matter when the safe is sitting wide open. Good counterfeit money is more expensive than you think. If you're looking to fake money on the cheap, a real bill bound to a stack of phyllo- will do.
Michael: (voice-over) Exploiting an asset is easier when they have a vice: an addiction you can feed. Drugs, money, respect, women.
Michael: (voice-over) In any covert operation, your first concern is remaining undetected. Whether you're infiltrating a military base or getting car parts from your mom's garage without her knowing, staying invisible is tough. And no matter how good you are... sometimes they're better.
Michael: (voice-over) The key to hand-to-hand combat is to be able to close the distance between you and your opponent without putting them on their guard.
Michael: (voice-over) A hairpin is one of the most versatile tools in a thief's arsenal. It's as good as a key most of the time; but not when the lock is a magnetic card reader.
Michael: (voice-over) To win a negotiation you have to show you're willing to walk away. And the best way to show you're willing to walk away... is to walk away.
Michael: (voice-over) One job of the security chief is babysitting the secrets. If one goes missing, it's a big deal. Even if it's just transactional data on chemical imports. Steal a few files, no matter how boring, and you've got leverage. Play your cards right and you can trade what you've got for what you want.
Michael: (voice-over) Consulates are a great place to renew your visa, pay your taxes back home or find foreign spies working under diplomatic cover. Like all bureaucrats, consulate employees live in fear of a pissed off journalist.
Michael: (voice-over) There aren't many rules in the spy trade. There are a few agreements that most intelligence agencies honor though; low level agents get traded, not prosecuted; you don't shoot foreign operatives if you can avoid it, and you stay away from embassies and consulates.
Barry: You want me to make two hundred grand just poof? Appear in your numbered account? Michael, I'm good, but I can't just will that kind of money into existence.
Michael: No one's saying it has to exist. Come on, you've never written a bad cheque? You were called "Bad Cheque Barry".
Michael: (pretending to be Davis Cohen, an oil baron's kid) Friend, you're ruinin' my ratio. I have a good ratio goin' on, I got four ladies to one Davis. Four to one -- I like that.
Michael: Mom, I gotta get to work, actually. Uh, what is it you need?
Madeline: Well, I can't find my salad spinner.
Michael: That is tragic.
Fiona: Zeke is one careful con-man. He's security conscious, he's smart... smooth, too, in a cheesy Sam kind of way.
Sam: Hey, smooth is smooth, baby.
Waseem: (quoting a note from Michael that's written in Urdu) "I will be wearing a white shirt and..." (laughs) This word right here? It is a kind of... spicy goat cheese.
Michael: I was trying to say "black pants". My Urdu's a little rusty.
Waseem: At least you got the name of the restaurant right.
Michael: (voice-over) Most of the people who work in a consulate are just municipal drones enjoying an overseas post. But the head of security? That guy's almost always a spy.
Michael: Fi, how's it going?
Fiona: (holding her cards and drinking a beer) Down to the felt. Fullboat Phylis here didn't tell me she used to deal holdem in Reno!
